Teacher Professional Continuum (TPC) Program

Teacher Professional Continuum (TPC)


Jointly managed by the Division of Elementary, Secondary, and Informal Education (ESIE) and the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE), the TPC program addresses critical issues and needs regarding the recruitment, preparation, induction, retention, and life-long development of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teachers for grades K-12. Its goals are to improve the quality and coherence of learning experiences for teachers across the continuum through research that informs teaching practice and the development of innovative resources for the professional development of K-12 STEM teachers. The program supports Research Studies, Resources for Professional Development, and Conferences and Symposia.

The TPC program succeeds ESIE's Teacher Enhancement (TE) program and DUE's Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Teacher Preparation (STEMTP) program.


Preliminary proposals (required for Category A [Research Studies] and Category B [Resources for Professional Development]; not required for Category C [Conferences and Symposia]): May 25, 2004
Formal proposals:
     September 10, 2004, for Category A and Category B.
     Category C proposals may be submitted at any time but are expected to be submitted at least one year in advance of the planned event.
